Sorry, my curiosity, but switch from an aluminium frame of the Z's to a plastic one of the X's are not a less premium touch feel considering also the other brands more premium?

Unfortunately I found another features that was taken away from XZ:
1. "Signature" notification sound and other notifications. Signature Sony? Really? This is your most recognized notification sound, like when you hear it you know someone has Sony... Please give it back.
2. Regular widgets including the weather. Where is the older weather widget? I was using both, the old and new one for different locations. I liked the older one too. Please stop removing regular widgets like STAMINA or Weather widgets, please give it back.
3. ability to decide which pane is your "home screen" was removed, and now only the one on the left, closest to the google pane is your home :/ Not good, for me it is always the one in the middle...
So not only small apps, lockscreen widgets and radio was taken away but much more features
And now there is this stupid Google pane on the left, what a waste...

To have the home pane as you want, you must disable Google Now on the launcher settings. I am a beta tester of the launcher and in this way you return to have the pane as before with the possibility to choose wich is your home.
For the old weather widget, you can try to search and download it from "apk.mirror. I have done so to have again the camera widget on my Z2 after Android 6 update that had remove it.
In my opinion, Xperia XZ has only a marginal updates in camera, but the missed features are enormous to evaluate to buy, primarly the large amount of plastic used.

I update my phone to android 7.0 with factory reset
and after using it many days I found these errors in 7.0 update that seriously need to be fix
1- Fingerprint scanner :
Some time finger print scanner does not work properly, in 6.0.1 marshmallow I never face this kind of issue. I also try to clean up my sensor so many times and completely wash my fingers but result is same. please report this to developers.
2- Loud speaker volume :
As compare to 6.0.1 marshmallow firmware the loud speaker volume is low in 7.0 update.
3- Main Camera resolution for third party camera apps :
One thing that I missing in Android 6.0.1 and 7.0 update is Higher resolution (23 Megapixels ) support in third party camera apps.
I tried so many third party camera apps all give me 8.3 Megapixel resolution for main camera instead of 23 Megapixels, same thing I was facing previously in my Z5.
Please Sony please remove this limitation for third party camera apps.
4- After restart the phone, Quick panel toggles position reset itself.
